Welcome to the March 2022 Edition of the FRN Newsletter!

With the spring semester in full swing, we offer greetings to our college and university partners and trust that you are well and in good spirits. As institutions across the globe are returning to in-person instruction and campus activities, we are delighted to welcome participants back to New York University’s Washington Square campus for FRN programs. 

The FRN Network Summer, Summer Scholar-in-Residence, and University Associate Programs will be delivered in-person this year and we very much look forward to fostering connection and collaboration among our Network constituents. While COVID-19 remains with us for now and the news of international conflicts challenges us, we are hopeful that opportunities to join together as a community will positively impact our work and leadership on and off of our respective campuses.

We thank you for your continued support of the Faculty Resource Network and send well wishes for a successful completion of the spring term.

In the Spotlight

FRN Special Session: Faculty Well-Being Brain Trust

As requested during the FRN National Symposium, we are hosting a monthly brain trust for faculty developers and others to connect, listen, and support each other through this unprecedented and uncertain time. These sessions will offer an opportunity for crowd-sourcing and community-building by engaging in the act of deep listening as we share practices in our roles as well as thoughts and feelings about our roles.
We held our 2nd FRN Faculty Well-Being Brain Trust on Friday, February 11, 2022. We will be holding our 3rd on Friday, March 11, 2022. Register to participate.
Moving forward, we will continue to have an FRN Faculty Well-Being Brain Trust the second Friday of every month at noon EST provided there is continued interest and engagement. 
We look forward to your participation!

Apply to Lead a Future Session of an FRN Faculty Well-Being Brain Trust

As a lead, you will set the sub-topic of faculty well-being, the session’s agenda, and facilitate engagement for the hour with Zoom support from the FRN. A lead has the unique opportunity to learn and grow, while supporting their FRN peers. The FRN Faculty Well-Being Brain Trust, spearheaded by Dr. Rosalie Richards, is a member-only benefit and community-led opportunity to engage, get support, and build network connections on specific sub-topics of faculty well-being. Each brain trust or circle will be led by a peer colleague on a select sub-topic of faculty well-being to provide leadership and guidance for participants to collaborate and share best practices. There is no compensation for leading. It is voluntary. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis provided there is continued interest and participation in the FRN Faculty Well-Being Brain Trust.
FRN Teach Share RECAP
We held our second, virtual FRN Teach Share program via Zoom, during a three-day event on January 18-20, 2022. We collectively shared student engagement strategies, tools, techniques, and challenges for keeping students engaged and active in the classroom with course content and peer-to-peer learning through discussion and participation. We had nineteen presentations and twenty speakers from Clark Atlanta University, DEREE - The American College of Greece, Fairfield University, Farmingdale State College, New York University, Ramapo College of New Jersey, St. Joseph's College-New York, and the University of the Sacred Heart in Puerto Rico. You can watch the video archives of all the talks on the FRN Website.

FRN Faculty News

Thanks to the FRN Remote Scholar Fellowship, Paul Wilson of Shaw University was able to revise and submit for peer review a conference paper, "Moral Pathways forward for Resisters in a Genocide." The paper was accepted for publication in the next volume of the Philosophy of Peace Series, "Peace and Hope in Dark Times."
Penguin Random House is publishing the international paperback version of Connect The Dots: The Art & Science Of Creating Good Luck by NYU Professor Christian Busch. The "wise, exciting, and life-changing book" (Arianna Huffington) that offers "excellent practical guidance for all" (former Unilever CEO Paul Polman) is based on Dr. Busch's research with dozens of leading CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurs, and innovators around the world. He develops a science-based framework, along with inspiring stories and practical exercises, that helps develop a “muscle” for the unexpected in order to enable people to live more joyful, meaningful, and successful lives.
